The Austin Blockchain Collective’s January 18 online meetup focused on “Lightning Network Basics, Lightning Pool and Shadowchains.” Lightning is a Layer 2 protocol for boosting the performance and scalability of the Bitcoin network. The presentation began with an overview of Lightning and then delved deeper into Inbound Liquidity problem, how Lightning Pool addresses it, and what shadowchains are all about.
The presentation was delivered by Ryan Gentry, Business Development Lead at Lightning Labs. Ryan was previously a research analyst at Multicoin Capital and before that he was a technologist at Intel working on IoT. Play Meetup Archive video below.
